This week: New mas­caras for every lash look

Pick Me Up! - - CONTENTS -

May­belline Snap­scara, £7.99

May­belline rules the high-street mas­cara aisle, but what’s this ‘snap’ all about? Time­sav­ing, that’s what! The waxfree for­mula is so smooth it can be loaded on in a jiffy with­out clump­ing, then washes off with warm wa­ter and a cot­ton pad as quick as a fin­ger click.

W7 It’s Brown, £5.95

Many peo­ple find brown mas­cara as un­ap­peal­ing as blue eye­shadow, but ac­tu­ally, if you have fair skin, pale eyes or just want an easy day look, cho­co­late shades give the def­i­ni­tion of black but can look a bit fresher. Tempted? Give it a whirl with this bar­gain by W7 – at this price you’ve got noth­ing to lose.

Revlon Volumaz­ing, £8.99

The name says it all. This will trans­form the short­est, fairest, skin­ni­est set of lashes into some­thing re­sem­bling a set of eye­lash ex­ten­sions. Shimmy the wand from side to side as you ap­ply to knock out any clumps and you’re good to go.

Rim­mel Won­der’fully Real, £7.99

Fi­bre mas­caras are the busi­ness for adding va-va-voom length with­out smear­ing all over your lids as the day wears on. The 4mm fi­bres in this build up to some pretty ma­jor flut­ter, so it’s pos­si­bly more suited to night than ev­ery­day wear.

Max Fac­tor Vol­ume In­fu­sion, £12.99

When you think about it, we ex­pect a lot of our lashes – longer, darker, big­ger, bolder – with­out re­ally show­ing them any love in re­turn. This mas­cara aims to change that, of­fer­ing the fat, full look you’d ex­pect from Max Fac­tor but with strength­en­ing ker­atin and an ex­tra­gen­tle fi­bre wand.

Lacura Too Le­git! £5.99

Looks a bit fa­mil­iar, doesn’t it? This bar­gain dupe not only shares its ap­pear­ance with a cer­tain best­seller three times the price, but it also has the same chunky, char­coal­black, false-lash ef­fect. It’s not quite as budge-proof, though, so try dust­ing some loose pow­der on your eye­lids if you’re prone to smudges.

L’oreal Paris Un­lim­ited Pro Vol­ume Bend­able, £10.99

One for real mas­cara ob­ses­sives, this clever wand flicks into a right an­gle so you can wave and wig­gle it into every mil­lime­tre of your lash line. So you can fi­nally coat every last lash – right down to the tiny corner ones you prob­a­bly don’t re­alise are there. A tad time­con­sum­ing, yes, but so worth it.

Gosh Catchy Eyes, £8.99

We love this fun retro-pink tube, which looks like some­thing Frenchie from

Grease would pull out of her hand­bag. In­side, a curved wand with spiky rub­ber bris­tles picks up a small amount of for­mula and sep­a­rates lashes as it goes for a pretty curl.
